My post on The Jungle Book for Normblog
I was hugely flattered to be asked by Norman Geras to contribute a piece on a favoured book to his Writer’s Choice series. After much indecision – which may well end up reflected in another post here at some point – I finally chose Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, and you can read the resulting blog here.
In fact, I became so absorbed in the subject that Norm has kindly agreed to post a second contribution on Kipling – or more accurately, the second half of my original submission – next week, which looks more widely at Kipling’s reputation and the problems he inspires among readers and critics alike.
UPDATE: The article is now up on my blog here.
